It's a tough stage

Adjusting to two was tricking, but actively teaching and playing with two is tough.  Lucy is so mature but still so dependent that the clashes between those two dimensions sometimes seem impossible to traverse.  And Reid is learning so much that his little brain won't slow down enough to fall asleep and stay asleep on his own.  Not helping is the pulling himself up skill to which he has no reverse mode to get back down.  I adore these two but I haven't had many opportunities in the past month to feel like a very successful mom. But when all else fails and I have no energy and no ideas - to the bath or shower they both go. It soothes them.  It soothes me.

Reid reminds me so much of baby Britt in the 2nd picture!
